One of the best pubs in the area. A lovely old traditional boozer in the backstreets of Walsall. This place has not changed a lot in years and its like taking a step back to the Victorian age. There is a lounge and a saloon with a lovely traditional wooden bar between the two and a wonderful tiled walkway linking them. Both bars have a lovely wood burning fire and the ales to go with them on a cold winter night. There are ten real ales that regularly rotate. There is always something new here. The landlord is very friendly and knowledgeable too and the pub has a real friendly local feel to it. Itís a short trek from the centre of town, but its well worth the walk. For anyone driving, parking locally is no problem.

Formerly the Tap and Spile. This place is a homely, snug local, which appears to have been decorated recently. 8 handpulls with some reasonably tasty local options. This is a another Black Country brewery pub, and is worth seeking out, being just a 5 minute walk from the train station.
